CHICAGO (Illinois), August 28, 2017 – The comb over. The brush back. The ball cap. Tried and trusted ways to hide hair loss. But, as we all know, hiding it won’t stop it.
An estimated 50-million men and 30-million women suffer from hair loss in the United States, according to the American Academy of Dermatology.
August is National Hair Loss Awareness month, and there is no better time to introduce innovative treatment options. Now there’s a hair transplant method that involves using the hair you still have. And the best part is that it does not include the prominent scar or the accompanying pain associated with current practices.
“No one likes to lose their hair,” said Paul Savage, M.D., of Chicago-based integrative medicine medical practice, Agenixs, who has begun offering NeoGraft to his patients.
“NeoGraft is an exciting option for men and women who are losing their hair, because the process is almost undetectable, and the recovery time is much quicker than with older treatment techniques,” Savage said.
The program begins with a specially designed hair transplant plan that allows patients to envision what their fuller head of hair might look like.
With the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, the hair at the back of a patient’s head begins to be carefully removed, one at a time. There is no harvesting, common with other transplant options, which causes a scar. The collected follicles are then implanted into the spaces on the head where hair growth is sought. Patients who undergo FUE typically return to work the next day.
Once the hair follicle has been implanted, it will remain in place for a couple of weeks before shedding. The new hair will then begin growing a couple months after that.
The procedure can cost as little as $3,000 or as much as $25,000, depending on the amount of hair loss.
